ANewStart suite is a slick, clear theme for GNOME desktop environment.
It's designed to work under Gnome-Shell, Gnome-Fallback and Unity. For Unity and Gnome-Fallback mode, please read the README file inside the pack.

This themes comes also with: AWN Theme, CoverGloobus Theme, Conky files, Firefox Startpage (a modified version of startpage by =Folter-x),Gnome-panel (and AWN) background images. Unfortunately, since 1.3 version these themes are not fully supported, since for compatibility reasons with GNOME3 they became quite useless or unusable.

Other informations:


  • GTK3 -> Unico GTK3 engine version 1.0.1 or later (only if you're using Gnome 3 or GTK3 applications).

  • GTK2 -> Murrine GTK2 engine or later


Version 1.3 (09-12-11)

  • Added GTK3 and Gnome-Shell Theme

  • Added Unity support; there is also a "Unity tweak" folder with images you can use to beautify your Unity experience (simple instructions are in the README pdf file).
